Darlington to crack down on semi braking
Placeholder Image
DARLINGTON - The Darlington Police Department announced Tuesday its intention to enforce a noise prohibition ordinance in response to complaints of semi trucks loudly braking within city limits. The Department continually receives complaints from residents regarding semi trucks using compression brake systems within the city, according to a Darlington Police news release. When activated, these brake systems, also known as "jake brakes," emit a loud noise that can be a significant disturbance in populated areas.
